Sal Jansson

Utah Division of Arts & Museums (UDAM) teaching artist.

Salome  (Sal)  Wolfgramm  Jansson  was  born  in  Auckland, New  Zealand.    She  teaches  the  dance,  music,  arts  and crafts, stories and legends of the Polynesian islands: Ha- waii, Tahiti, Tonga, Samoa and New Zealand. She believes using this art form as a tool, can provide basic job readi- ness skills.
Sal organizes Hawaiian luaus where proceeds are split be- tween artist and the organization/school.   An action plan is developed and presented showing projected outcomes for all involved.  This would be a 2 week residency with the fol- lowing  components:   the  participants  are  divided  into  3 categories ie. students, administration and community.
Sal’s  residencies  include  performance  elements  such  as learning  how  to  dance,  sing  and  teach  students  how  to work as a team to accomplish goals.  This process provides the ability to assist in developing many disciplines of the participants utilizing the Polynesian folk arts as tool culmi- nating in  a  luau  which produces outcomes.     The  target group is middle and high schools and/or private organiza- tions.  Sal has taught all ages.  She is flexible, patient, and positive, giving all involved an enjoyable and educational experience. The program includes all who wish to partici-
pate, no matter what disability may exist. There are addi- tional fees for supplies.
